Exhibit Details

In the American Republic few things are more universal than our collective interest in and disdain for democratic politics. Whether we are imagining our ancestors reading broadside newspaper articles to one another on the steps of their local post offices or our peers today engaging collective, almost stream of conscience debates through the various mediums of the internet age, we are an intensively political people, not merely among our elites and ivory—tower intellectuals, but almost universally. Our culture is that of democratic-republicanism, with its equal shares of beauty and muck.


Cherry Bounce is guest curated by Dr. Eric Drummond Smith.
